Along Came a Spider...213
The Avengers face the full might of the Skrulls as the alien invasion hits Earth! Captain America, Thor and Iron Man lead the charge against an army of Super-Skrulls and their queen Veranke.
The Skrulls are taking over as The Imposter of Lyle Getz takes out A.I.M. agents. S.H.I.E.L.D., S.W.O.R.D., and other organizations are being taken over by Skrulls. The Skrull Imposter of Henry Gyrich would cause the S.W.O.R.D. Ship, Damocles to destruct. Sydren would order all S.W.O.R.D. Personnel off the ship.

- Neither Thor nor Iron Man were in the Avengers since "A Day Unlike Any Other" and "Who Do You Trust?", until now.
- Maria Hill found Nick Fury and Iron Man injured, from when they were ambushed by Veranke in "Infiltration".
- Hulk was the only original member to not fight in the Skrull war on Earth.
- Captain America finally returned to Earth when he escaped the Skrull prison in "Prisoner of War".
- Despite not making an appearance, a picture of Cyclops is seen in Nick Fury's base.
- Thor returns to Earth, which means that Asgard has been rebuilt and that Odin has regained his strength.
- A mistake was made in the episode when Damocles was destroyed. Since the Time Drive was destroyed along with the ship, it should have jumped back into the future. However, it did not.
